FiiO E17 "ALPEN" - First Impression + Final Thought - Page 366

post #5476 of 6431

My E17's headphone jack just died, and I've only had it for 1.5 months. What can I do? Got from Amazon, so I guess return although it's past 30 days?

 You may try contacting FiiO directly. I believe their custom services are good.

 

It will be great if they continue to improve their products. E07K is a good step up from E07.

   This cable is male to female as it states in the title:

 

 

StarTech.com 6-Inch Micro USB to Mini USB Adapter Cable M/F (UUSBMUSBMF6).

 

    It wouldn´t work. I was about to buy it, but that is why I bought that one in ebay. I couldn´t find anyone in amazon...

Fiio, I love your product. I was typing for an assignment, and my E17 dropped twice. Sadly to say, it dented...




...My floor.

No marks on my E17. It does leave silver scratches on the side, but bah, it's a solid product. So solid, that If you use DAC and something is wrong, it's probably your computer. I just plugged it into my main USB port, and the sound is amazing. It never ceases to amaze me.

Very solid product, I would recommend getting it to anyone that asked.

Thank you, Fiio. biggrin.gif

Please contact the dealer who sold you the E17 , or contact us ( market@fiio.com.cn ) if the dealer refuse to help you.

 

Sorry for the trouble and we will keep improve the quality control and use the best component as we can. but so far the defective rate is quite low and we will try to control it down to <0.5% in 2013.

headphone jack, bottom, switcher, potentiometer ( volume control component ) , and other parts which include mechanical structure is hard to control to zero defective rate. but we will try to use the best 

 

parts from some very high quality supplier like ALPS in Japan. and for headphone jack, we already changed to an new one , maybe I should write something to introduce how we try to improve the quality

 

in design, manufacture and test.

Thank you for the reply. I love your product and was devastated when the left channel no longer worked. Now I'm gonna have to deal with ****ty onboard audio until I can get the E17 replaced.

I'm looking into buying them with my tax refund (if it's enough)

it is best to get personal opinions

 

The sensitivity and impedance of the headphone is very low though.

Try to contact your dealer and if all fails, go through FiiO support

 

it is recommend you deal locally first. As shiping from Asia is pain

Many claim the combo of the two of them together using the E17 as DAC solely will sound better than the E17 alone, but this would most likely be true with higher impedance headphones. I have tried the E17 for a little on my Q's and it sounded just the way I would want it to, driven just fine. But as always, I would just buy the E09K from somewhere with a great return policy and buy it for yourself to see.

My old combo. These LP2s broke after a chair rocked, pushed me over and I fell on them.

I meant the AUX cable, not the actual jack, sorry.
The AUX cable supplied in the box died within a week when I put it in my pocket.

Well, for the Price, Fiio E17 is a great product. Ive had it for about 3 months now and i use it as a DAC only for my HE-400 with the asgard shiit as amplifier. 

Mostly, the Fiio APM is quite Neutral, while the asgard suits the HE-400 better from my perspective.

On a side note, the Fiio E17 has some of the best features ive seen.

Bass and treble equalizer is great, battery time is very decent, and the DAC has an above averege quality.

This costed me about 200$ (In poland prices tend to go up on everything), and i would get it again probably if i had to choose just as a portable amp that i can carry in my pocket.

Sorry for that, maybe you can ask the dealer send a new one to you . it is too expensive to us to ship you a new one.

A medium length interconnect cable is cheap on ebay

One inch short ones arent
